3 Common Signs That You Need To Schedule Drain Cleaning Services

by Floyd Dunn

Drain pipes are prone to occasionally incur clogs due to the accumulation of debris and sludge. Debris or sludge buildup in drain pipes leads to clogs which block or limit wastewater flow. As a result, you will notice several signs indicating that your drain pipes have a clog or a clog is developing. 

Most homeowners opt to deal with the situation using various homemade remedies. But, most homemade remedies only provide a short-term solution. Thus, the best way to deal with the clogs is by enlisting drain cleaning services. Drain cleaning services use pressurized water to rid your drain pipes of residue that could cause future clogs. 

Here are three signs you need to schedule drain cleaning services. 

1. Frequent Clogs

Using homemade remedies to clean your drains only agitates the clogs. As a result, sludge and debris residue remains attached to the drainpipe walls. After some time, the residue on the drainpipe walls attracts more sludge and debris, resulting in a new clog. 

Frequent clogs occur because your drain pipe walls still have sludge and debris remnants. Thus, if you are encountering frequent drainpipe clogs, it is a sign you need to schedule drain cleaning services. 

Drain cleaning contractors use pressurized water to dislodge any debris or sludge attached to your drain pipe walls. As a result, no residue gets left in your drain pipes to facilitate the development of a new clog. Hence, after a drain cleaning service, you will not encounter any clogs for a very long time. 

2. Slow Running Drains

If your drains are taking longer than usual to get rid of wastewater, you may have a clog developing. In such a scenario, the developing clog restricts the flow of wastewater. Thus, your drains run slower than usual. However, it is only a matter of time before the clog fully develops and blocks your drain pipes. 

So, if you are experiencing slow-running drains, schedule a drain cleaning service immediately. A prompt drain cleaning service can help prevent the clog from fully developing.

3. Unpleasant Odors 

When food and human waste particles fester in your drain pipes, they release unpleasant odors. In most cases, the unpleasant odors don't go down the drain but rather rise back to your house. As a result, you may come across foul odors from your sink, toilets, and shower cubicles. The foul odors may also attract flies into your house.

Schedule a drain cleaning service when you notice foul odors or an increased presence of flies in your home. Drain cleaning services can flush away the festering waste in your drain pipes, thus eliminating the foul odors filling your house.

The Two C's

Welcome to a blog about the two C's. The two C's, as you might have already guessed are construction and contractors. These words are closely related. "Construction" refers to the art and science of building something. That something could be anything from a shed to a sidewalk. "Contractors" are the people who do the building. There are general contractors who do all sorts of building work, and then there are specialists who do work such as plumbing, electrical work, and drywall. Stop by and read a few articles when you have the time, and we promise you'll learn more about these two C's.
